The Faith and Health Coalition is a network of faith-based organizations, of all faiths, partnered with local health promoting agencies.
Every faith-based organization in Savannah is committed to healthy lifestyles.
The coalition will provide support to Savannah’s faith-based organizations as they encourage a culture of health among their members and the community.
Faith, Activity, and Nutrition Training:
The Faith, Activity, and Nutrition Training (FAN) is a virtual, 8-week self-paced course tailored towards churches to begin discussing the importance of health and provide guidance to create a successful Health Ministry. The course is lead by the University of South Carolina on a virtual platform and modules are released weekly.
If you are interested in learning more about how your church or faith-based organization can be involved in the Faith, Activity, and Nutrition training, please visit the University of South Carolina website or complete an interest form.
If you have any questions about the program please contact Ruby Hallam or email the University of South Carolina directly.
